I have a soft spot in my heart for one-hit wonders.

Poor Brandy just can’t catch a break. Not only is she working in a bar in some harbor town, but her boyfriend is the only sailor who can’t be stolen from the sea by the beauty of her eyes. Oh, well. At least she got that locket made of the finest silver from the north of Spain…

And surprise! The Red Hot Chili Peppers also covered this song on Live in Hyde Park. (Sure. Why not.)

I love how Flea calls out to Brandy at the end: “Brandy! Braaaandyyy, you’re a fine girl!” Sorry Flea, but I think Brandy is only into sailors.

Happy Music Monday, everyone. Have a great week (especially if your name is Brandy).
